Simplivity File Restore

We are just now implementing Simplivity and I'm wondering if it is possible to allow a least priviledged support technician access to restore files.  It appears so far that the only way I can search the backups is if my user is in the administrator role of our VSphere with access to everything.  Even if I create a new role with full privileges I can't search backups.  Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?


Re: Simplivity File Restore


Hi, and apologies for the delay in replying to your question.

This is a question which has come up a couple of times recently (outside of this forum)

Unfortunately, there is no way to grant a non-admin user permissions to restore backups.

To allow full functionality regards browsing, restoring, taking backups etc., the user must be a member of the administrators group.

Hope this helps answer your question.

Thanks you,
